Faerun mod for Civ V

Post by Shir'le E. Illios » Tue Nov 26, 2013 10:31 am

I haven't tried it yet myself, but [url=http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/11 ... /:22qxvaoc]Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports[/url:22qxvaoc] on a mod for Civilization V that reskins the game with a Faerun theme.

[quote:22qxvaoc][center:22qxvaoc][img:22qxvaoc]http://cloud.steampowered.com/ugc/90101 ... sizedimage[/img:22qxvaoc][/center:22qxvaoc]

[url=http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/f ... =:22qxvaoc]The Faerun mod[/url:22qxvaoc] requires the Gods and Kings DLC and will disable Brave New World when used, and it adds just about everything you could want from a Dungeons and Dragons themed Civ game.

Religions are now Deity Cults, policies are schools of magic and random events include rampaging dragons and other beasties. My favourite part is the selection of Civs though, with 25 representing several groups of the major races.[/quote:22qxvaoc]
No idea if there's drow in it (I would expect so) or whether Eilistraee is mentioned it it. In fact no idea if it's pre or post Spellplague. But RPG reckons it's pretty good so if you like CivV then it should be worth a try at least.

Since I do have Gods and Kings, but don't have Brave New World I'll probably give this a go as well in the near future.

P.s. Yes it's been a while since I last posted a news item.

Well, Alusair is in the picture you posted, so I guess that the mod is pre-SP (or that it includes every faction from Faerun timeline).

I've tried it. It's pretty fun, and is a well balanced mod. The priestesses replace the swordsman for the drow, last I checked, and the faith bonuses can be a great building block (earlier religions get first dibs on bonuses). I always play as the drow.

Thank you for your insight. I still haven't tried it yet (planning to do so over the holiday break, assuming I get my new notebook before then). But definitely will next time I play Civ.
